Revealed! Newcastle United’s disastrous Boxing Day record and how it compares with Manchester United, Tottenham and Leicester City

The stats have shown that Newcastle United don’t tend to fare too well on Boxing Day.

This year, Eddie Howe’s side don’t play on Boxing Day, instead, they face Manchester United on Monday December 27.

This is probably good news when you consider their dismal record whilst playing on December 26.

Evidently not a season of good cheer for Newcastle United supporters, over the past decade, few teams have had a worse record on Boxing Day than Newcastle.
